Mottramite

ID: CC3200

A splendid specimen of Mottramite from the celebrated Tsumeb Mine, Namibia. The Mottramite has formed as a aggregate of inter-grown botryoidal bubbles with a ring-like development atop the specimen. A typical lustre is seen to the specimen with light and dark green banding to the exposed areas. Tiny colourless-white crystals of Smithsonite are liberally scattered over the Mottramite. A super example of Mottramite from the Tsumeb mine.
